Fedora 27 : qutebrowser (2018-fa19f76ac5)

High Nessus Plugin ID 110915


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes an XSS vulnerability on the qute://history page (:history).

The vulnerability allowed websites to inject HTML into the page via a crafted title tag. This could allow them to steal your browsing history.

It also ships some minor fixes not worth mentioning.


Add a few (minor) options.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected qutebrowser package.
